Bend Studio is here to show us why we should all be excited for Days Gone, so haters…leave now! The latest trailer for Days Gone has dropped and I am floored by not only the detail, but what you can do in this game. With variation of zombies or “Freakers” in the game, there has to be more then one way to take these enemies down. In the trailer, we are shown a few ways to take out the freakers and the bandits in this world with melee attacks, burning freakers out with fire, or just good old fashion guns.
The game not only has weapons to us, you can also use the Combat Focus mode to slow down time and get closer, more critical shots on your enemies. This is a great addition to the game, as is the addition of crafting and repairing melee weapons literally on the go. As you may know, Days Gone was originally slated for a 2018 release, then was pushed to Feb 22nd, 2019, then was pushed a third time to April 26th. Even though it has been pushed back 2 times, I cant wait to learn more about this game. Days Gone releases April 26th, 2019 for PS4!
Days Gone is an open-world action-adventure game set in a harsh wilderness two years after a devastating global pandemic. Play as Deacon St. John, a drifter and bounty hunter who rides the broken road, fighting to survive while searching for a reason to live.
• Harsh Open World: Using the power of PlayStation 4 and Unreal Engine 4, Days Gone offers an incredibly realistic and detailed open-world experience.

But be careful— day and night cycles, along with dynamic weather systems, all affect gameplay and enemy behavior.
